Needs a new principal! Way to much bullying in this school. Needs to treat all sports teams the same!!! Certain races run this school push other students out of line for lunch and staff does nothing. Probably scared too.

This school has a very poor special education department. They allow students to be bullied and even assaulted. Do not bother to ask for a meeting to try to improve things for your child. The assistant principle will just sit in the meeting and eat paying no attention to your concerns. Major waste of time and energy. Hope to have my child moved from this school in the upcoming year.

the staff and those in charge are not very helpful. They allow bullies to get away with everything. They do not go out of their way to help a student catch up or help them if they do not understand something. They signal students out and watch them like criminals which only adds to the pressure . They do nothing to protect the children who get bullied. They punish the one who gets bullied and allow the ones doing the bulling to get a slap on the wrist. This school need to change the way they teach and and protect our children. If i could move I would just to save my child because it is heart breaking for me. I can not even get anyone over their heads to listen to me. Do not send your child to this school. It is the worst place for a child to go to. This school needs to be shown for what they are and fixed. God help those children who are not strong enough to go to this school more deaths will be on the rise if someone doesn't do something to change this school around fast.
